RDGCC Memo – June 10, 2016

Dear Members

The Clubhouse will close this Sunday at 9 am as we host The Love of Children Golf Classic.  Kudos to chair Rob Kellough on another full field.  The Love of Children is Central Alberta’s premiere golf tournament.  They get started with a black tie gala Sunday, tournament play is Monday and a private concert Monday night.

Congratulations to Mike McAdam who recorded our second hole in one of the year on Tuesday.  Mike aced #2.

This coming Tuesday June 14 we host the 17th annual Riverview Insurance Solutions Skins Game.  The pro’s tee off on the front 9 at 5 pm.  Participants this year include Scott Stiles, Riley Fleming, Michael Gligic, Ryan Werre and RDGCC assistant pro Jordan Krulicki.  Come on out, watch some good golf and cheer Jordan on!

We will have another pasta night with pasta prepared and served from the front of the house on Friday June 17th.  Reservations are recommended.

Monday June 20th we host the Women’s Classic.  Any ladies interested in playing should sign up right away as I hear they are very near sold out.  Chair June Larson and her committee have done a great job again this year filling the field and sponsorship in a tough economy.

On Tuesday June 21st we will have our first Girls Night Out commencing at 6pm. RDGCC members, and wives and girlfriends of RDGCC members can book times and invite friends to play 9 holes with a guest fee of $30.00 gst in.  Tee times are required and can be booked 3 days in advance by calling the golf shop.

Our next 9 Wine Nine and Dine is Saturday June 25th, guests pay $45.00 green fee which includes a $20.00 food and beverage credit upstairs.  Tee times may be booked one week in advance for 9 Wine and Dines.

This year in lieu of discounted green fee coupons we will have several days where guests will play at a rate of $63.00 including gst.  Our first day with the reduced fee will be Monday June 27th.  We will give lots of notice on the reduced fee dates and hope members choose to invite friends and showcase the beautiful Red Deer Golf and Country Club.

I took a call from the contractor doing the Riverview erosion project that golf balls have been periodically shot at his crew and equipment.  I would ask all members to keep and eye out for any golfers that maybe hitting balls across the river.  Anyone caught doing so will be immediately suspended.

Think Sunshine!
